Just Between Friends: Consignment Sale #BestDeal

Having kids can be expensive. It amazes me how quickly they grow out of clothes and shoes! Plus, with Christmas and 2 birthdays between October and January, we blow through our budget in no time.  Thankfully, when I was pregnant with Grace, my mom and I happened to see a sign for the local Just Between Friends sale and since I have shopped consignment sales and paid a fraction of the retail cost for my kids clothes and toys.

I had the chance to visit the Overland Park Just Between Friends Sale this week and it didn't disappoint. There is a huge selection of clothes, toys, books, and all sorts of baby gear to choose from. I received $25 to shop with and set off on a mission to finish Connor's fall wardrobe, get Halloween costumes, and find Christmas presents for both kids. I'm happy to say that I more than accomplished my goal and got some amazing deals!

For Connor, I needed fall shoes, church and play clothes. Due to time constraints (grandma had to get to work!) I wasn't able to spend too long in the clothing section but I found:

Old Navy Flannel Shirt & Jeans- $3
Cars Shirt & Pants- $3
2 Carters Sleepers- $5

Tommy Plaid Shirt and Jeans- $4.50
Baby Gap jeans- $4.50
Peter Pan hat/bow set- $3.50

OshKosh Shoes- new- $6.50
Black Dress Shoes- $4

Grace is pretty picky about her clothes right now so I don't buy her much without her approval. But she did need warm PJs and a coat so I found a few things for her.
2 Carters PJs with tutus- $10- This is a little more than what I would normally spend on PJs, but she's refusing to wear anything but fancy nightgowns or tutu PJs right now so I was willing to spend more to get something she will actually wear.
Gymboree Pink Coat- $12

Grace decided the week before that she wants to be Tinkerbell for Halloween and Connor should be Peter Pan. I wasn't sure if I was motivated enough to make a Tinkerbell costume and was thrilled when I found a perfect one at the sale (it even has a tutu!) I also was looking for dress up clothes for Connor as he's been wearing Grace's dresses lately when they plays dress up.
Thomas the Train costume- New- $5.50
Tinkerbell costume- $4.50
Fireman costume- $3.50

I love giving books for Christmas and birthday gifts and I found both of these for Connor:

Disney Storybook Collection- $3
Touch and Feel Baby Animals- $1

I have been planning to buy Grace an "Our Generation" doll for her birthday gift and I was hoping to find some accessories at the sale. It must have been my lucky day because I found the ultimate accessory that Grace will adore:
All she plays with right now are her ponies and babies so she is going to flip out when she sees it. It retails for $36 and I got it for $10!

In total, after my $25 credit, I spent a total of $65.60. I would have spent that on the Halloween costumes alone at a retail store! Have I mentioned how much I love the Just Between Friends sales??
